‘The Christ­mas ta­ble is a great place to go over the top,’ says

Dan Cooper, Christ­mas buyer at John Lewis & Part­ners. ‘To cre­ate a ta­ble that’s ex­tra spe­cial, take time to con­sider your scheme, how you’d like it to look and the am­bi­ence you’re try­ing to cre­ate,’ he adds. How you dec­o­rate should be de­ter­mined by your ta­ble’s re­quire­ments, such as how many cour­ses you plan to serve and whether you’ll need space for ex­tra cut­lery. ‘For a busy Christ­mas ta­ble, scale back with a cen­tre­piece that will leave the rest of the ta­ble rel­a­tively clear for table­ware,’

Dan sug­gests. ‘This could be a beau­ti­ful wreath hous­ing a few can­dles, or some posy vases sim­ply clus­tered to­gether.’

Project de­tails This din­ing room tells an in­dul­gent de­sign story with el­lie Cash­man’s bold dark Flo­ral wall­pa­per and co­or­di­nat­ing cur­tains pro­vid­ing a dra­matic back­drop to the fab­u­lous ta­ble dis­play. Vintage green arm­chairs up­hol­stered in a manuel Canovas linen in­ject a splash of colour.
